With a nod to Grace, our church began a series of Sundays by having folks volunteer to capture some element(s) of each of the twelve minor prophets in a station of sorts. The results were thought-provoking, sobering, compelling, and invigorating. But most of all, very, very creative. I’m always humbled and deeply impressed by the broad base of creativity in our small community, and so glad to be a beneficiary of that creativity. It is truly a gift.
At the same time, as much as I’m struck by the uniqueness of our church, I have to believe that most every church has the same kind of resources– they just never give them any expression.
